These handmade ceramic figures of mother and baby seals have such soft and gentle expressions, they just have to be in pride of place in your home! These appealing sealions can be spotted in the sea around the coast in many of the more remote parts of the UK. These figures have been made with details modelled while the clay was still wet and they have whiskers made of natural fibre. The type of clay used in their construction suggests the sand on their skin from the rocky shores and sandy estuaries that they make their home.

The modelling and colour of the seals are inspired by the Harbour Seal, common in the north and east of the UK.

The mother seal figure stands 9cm tall and measures 18cm from back flippers to head. The baby seal stands 7.5cm tall and measures 13.5cm from back flippers to head.

Description

Share

These ceramic seals would make an unusual gift for many different people
  – people who appreciate marine animals and wildlife of the UK
  – a couple celebrating their 20th anniversary – traditionally marked by giving of china or pottery gifts
  – people who love the quirky & unusual
              … or keep it for yourself!

They are handmade by me in Wales using a specialist speckled terracotta clay, which has a beautiful depth of texture and pattern.  They have been fired to a high temperature to make them completely weather-proof and to allow them to be left outdoors in all weathers without risk of cracking, flaking or discolouring. The whiskers have been added after firing, using natural bristles.

These are two of the pieces that I made during the lockdown period of April to June 2020, using the ‘pinch pot’ technique. The shape of these seals is very tactile, inviting you to handle them to appreciate their feel.
